Meditating is a great way for many people to calm down and relax in order to cope with the stress life often brings. But I don't think it's for everyone, myself included. However, just because meditation isn't for me doesn't mean that I have anything against it. But some people I know are too critical regarding meditating. They say that when you're meditating, you're just sitting there. They say that it's boring and counterproductive. The thing is, although I don't meditate myself, I don't think it's fair for anyone to criticize meditating because it works quite well for so many other people.
